Derry Walls: The Catwalk of Fame

JS: This is THE catwalk of catwalk fame. here the British troops , inside the only remaining Irish town with a complete fortress wall, would fire upon the irish freedom fighters and across the valley to the side. The Catholic side of Derry is on this end of the river; across the way you will find the biggest church i have ever seen - St. Eugene's.

Ed: In more recent times parts of the walls were no-go areas, and patrolled by British soldiers. It is great to see Derry once again as a free and vibrant city - I have visited on several occasions myself and always been warmly greeted by both sections of the community.
